New England is known around the country, and dare I say the world, for some incredible food, namely anything made with our freshly caught seafood like lobster rolls and clam chowder. What we're not yet known for has its very own day on November 13th each year. It's a dessert that looks like an apple crumble pie with ice cream, but it's not.

It's called Indian pudding, and you can still find it on the menu in a few places or make your own.

If you've had it before, you know it's a gooey, bubbling concoction that's a runny, hot mess where you just add vanilla ice cream and dig in. The Take Out website hit it on the head when it described it as the most delicious, comforting, quintessentially New England food you can eat.

According to The Take Out, there’s no official first recipe. Indian pudding dates back to early English settlements in New England on Cape Cod in 1620, quickly growing to include Boston and eventually New England. The Take Out says it most likely started as a hasty pudding or porridge made with flour, milk, and sugar, eventually using cornmeal when flour was hard to come by.

Soon, it was made with molasses because of easy access to the sweet syrup, and though not super well known anymore, there is a National Indian Pudding Day on November 13th.
